B612 Space Group President Danica Remy claimed that the risk to Earth from asteroids is very short term, but unavoidable in the short term. Speaking to NBC, she said she was 100 percent affected by a future collision. She said, "It's 100 percent sure we get hit, but we're not 100 percent sure when."
B612, founded in 2002, is an organization that leads worldwide efforts to protect the earth from the potential impact of asteroids.
One of the Foundation's original goals was to argue for a diversion mission to demonstrate asteroids.
Ms. Remy claimed that for the first time in human history, there is the technology that helps solve the problem.
Planet defense experts are currently working on ways to divert potentially dangerous terrestrial asteroids.
Experts believe the earth is inevitably hit by a devastating asteroid
Scientists claim that more needs to be done to identify them in time to take effective action.
An asteroid the size of the Eifell Tower raced across the earth in early August at a speed of over 10,000 miles per hour.
Space Rock, known as the QQ23 of 2006, missed the planet by 4.6 million miles.
This is not quite as bad for most astronomically located in the danger zone.
ONLY IN: NASA warning as kilometer-long space rock to fly over the earth
2006 Asteroid QQ23 Approached Earth in Early August
NASA estimates that at least 95 percent of the asteroids are one kilometer long (3,280 feet) or larger, with none being a threat to Earth.
The more realistic threat is from 2006 QQ23 space blocks, which could flatten a whole city, kill millions, and cause widespread destruction in the event of a direct hit.
Ms. Remy said, "The one kind of devastation we would look at is more regional than planetary, but it will still have global implications – transport, connectivity, climate and weather.
Experts Believe the Key to Avoiding A scenario is to go beyond planet killer and find all the asteroids that could hit Earth.

An asteroid could have catastrophic consequences if it hit Earth.
Ms. Remy added, "The real problem is that we have to have an inventory of all the asteroids." The whole point is to be able to capture all of these asteroids.
to accurately catalog their orbits and calculate them for the future.
"So, you know if it will cover 19 lunar distances, like 2006 QQ23, or if it gets closer – or if there is a danger to the impact represents.
NASA is now testing a system for deflecting asteroids.
The duplicate asteroid redirection of the agency The Test Mission (DART) is scheduled to launch in 2021.
The technology will blow up a kinetic impactor into an asteroid set to skim over the Earth in 2 022 with the goal of changing its course.
Kelly Fast, manager of NASA's Near Earth Object Observation program, told NBC, "The impact will blow off material to give it an extra boost." It only has to be distracted by a tiny amount so that it does not collide with the planet.
NASA's DART program examines asteroids to distract
Another way to distract an asteroid is to use the gravity of a spaceship to alter the path of space rock's gravity between a small spaceship and the asteroid to gently move it into another orbit.
The third option under investigation is to detonate a nuclear explosion near the asteroid to take it another course.
These approaches work only when there is enough warning to turn an asteroid on the ground.
Astrophysicist and science fiction writer David Brin believes that advanced technology will protect the planet from a major asteroid attack such as the one that killed the dinosaurs.
He told NBC, "As far as asteroid attacks are concerned, we need to remember that the dinosaurs are not here because they did not have a space program."
